I ordered a couple Darktroopers as well.  Hopefully they won't get cancelled or take forever to fulfill.  I also threw in a 6" Antoc Merrick and will cancel my other order.... unsure if that thing will ever show up anyway.

Looks like the Bad Batch 4-pack is back up to $56.

Seriously????  That’s $9.50 per figure!  I get the feeling that EE bought A LOT of these.  I also get the feeling that someone thought the Remnant Troopers would have the same level of appeal as the VC140 Stormtrooper.  But they’re way more specific and can’t be plugged in anywhere like clean Stormtroopers. 

It would also be nice if Hasbro would get around to making their boss in 3.75” form.

It's a great figure, but you only really need a handful of them for display.  The whole point of them being remnant stormtroopers is defeated if you have a legion of them.

That being said, if you can clean them up....
This is the way.

Agreed.  These were only found in Nevarro City with The Client, who was laxed in his discipline.   Down the road on Moff Gideon's base, the Stormtroopers on were pristine

Also agree with you regarding The Client.

Yeah I don’t need 100 of them, but I bought six and feel like another 8 would fill that scene out nicely.

With regular figures at $14.99, Gaming Greats hitting $16.99, and these being only $9.50, I am not sure if I should laugh or cry.  :P

I only have 2 so this will be a good pick up. Who knows? Maybe we encounter more outposts with sub-standard troops.

I took advantage of this deal, just to get some cheap bodies to give the "helmets" that come with the new Tatooine Deluxe Boba Fett - I got four of Boba to open so I have four each of those two alternate trashed/dirty helmet designs. :shrug:

I found a case worth of Migs Mayfields at Target tonight and wanted to buy a few to leave the helmets on them and have them as troops…

They’re priced at $18.29. 

Where the hell did that come from?

They’re $14.99 on Target.com.

This morning I saw 3 pegs at Target...

TVC Figures = $12.99
Koska Reeves = $13.99
Migs Mayfield = $14.99

And there was a mix of "Obi Wan Kenobi" show figures, Migs, and Koska spread out over all 3.

This is getting really obnoxious.  Just pick a price and let that be that.

I saw that $12.99 peg tag and thought it might actually be for the Retro collection.  But the store I went to was such a mess and lacking in inventory that I could scarcely make out what should be where.

Oh no, the Retro tag was way up at the top right of the planogram set and said $11.99, of course. >:D
